This week you will turn in a draft of your “Personal Philosophy and Theoretical Concepts” paper. Your paper should contain the following sections:
You MUST use the attached template here to complete your paper.The paper is to be thoroughly researched and well documented, with relevant material from the nursing theorists presented incorporated into the paper. Use the current edition of the APA Manual throughout the paper. Sources should focus on references from nursing theory but may also include conceptual and theoretical material from other professional domains. The paper, excluding references or appendices, is to be limited to 3-5 pages. Writing should be succinct and well organized, as it is impossible for the facilitator to evaluate form and content separately.
This is what my teacher wrote in regards of the first submission (which I have attached below):
Remember to change your theorist – you cannot have the same theorist as your group project
Remember the first and second page titles have to match exactly
You have to cite your theory every time you mention it, and use the theorist preferably in the citation
Review the use of et al – you are not using it correctly much of the time
Remember you need a page number in a citation too for a direct word for word quote
Read the paper carefully – I see a lot of typos and sentences that do not make sense
Add more citations to your definitions of metaparadigms
You cannot use the same concepts as the metaparadigms since you have already defined them previously in the paper.
Review correct style for references in APA format – you are not always following it.
